How to configure STAN S31 for IP networking

First connect the STAN to the network using a TP (i.e. twisted pair) network cable with RJ-45 connectors. Ensure that the correct cabling is used and that a CNK 101 003 Ethernet Isolation Box is connected between the STAN and the network. If you want to connect STAN directly to the network port of a printer, without going e.g. through a switch or a network HUB, the Rx/Tx signals of the cable need to be crossed.

Start the STAN and enter the System Settings dialog by first tapping the Tap to access service functions field during system start up (finish possible ongoing recordings by selecting Start New if asked), and then selecting the Change Settings button.

If there is a DHCP server on the network has a DHCP server, change the USE_DHCP setting to Yes. The DHCP server will supply the STAN with an IP address, subnet mask, and possibly also a DNS server and gateway if that is supported on the local network.

If you are not using a DHCP server, ensure the USE_DHCP setting is set to No. Then set the MACHINE_IP to the fixed IP address, and the MACHINE_IP_MASK to an appropriate subnet mask. If you want to use DNS name resolution, also set the DNS_IP. If communication through a gateway is required, e.g. if printers are localised on another subnet, GATEWAY_IP also needs to be set.

Note that the default MACHINE_IP,, stands for localhost,  which cannot be used if communicating with other computers or servers on a network.

Select the System Status menu button and verify the settings in  the External Status view of the System Status dialog.

The IP-addresses of network services are displayed in the Network field. After each IP address, the current status for the connection is stated as Offline (meaning that the network is temporarily offline), Online (that the network node could be reached using the ping protocol), or Inaccessible (meaning that the network is online, but there is no reply over the ICMP Echo (i.e. ping) protocol). Wait means that the network is being reconfigured.

If a DHCP server is configured, IP Address in the Network field should display an IP address with four numbers separated by dots. Automatic configuration can take several minutes each time the setting is being changed, depending on the DHCP server.

If a DHCP server is not being used, the connection can be verified by looking at the status of a configured DNS Server, Gateway or page printer if any configured. The status should then say Online. If none of those are configured, try to verify using the ping command from another computer on the network.
